1209-1169 - Mullein Plant And Spotted Cucumber Beetle
Photograph - Photography
What looks to be a Yellow Ladybug emerging from the bloom of this Mullein Plant found in the Ozarks is actually a Spotted Cucumber Beetle and, unlike the friendly Ladybug, a major agricultural pest insect of North America.
The Mullein Plant can grow to 2 m or more tall. It is actually native to Europe, northern Africa, and Asia and introduced into this region in the world.
